You know the feeling: you wake up after a great night sleep, swing your legs over the bed, stand up and – BOOM! – your body reminds you that you had a fantastic workout yesterday as you limp to the bathroom.
Muscle soreness is a sign you’ve worked hard (in fact, some people even love the feeling for that reason) but it doesn’t have to be a part and parcel with fit living.
These three tricks will help ease aching muscles after you exercise to get you recovering faster so you can workout harder next time…
1. Kayla Itsines Foam Roller
Using a foam roller to ease out the knots after a serious sweat session is a great way to cool down and will really help your muscles relax. Kayla’s foam roller comes with a guide to make sure you hit the sweet spot every time and release any unwanted tension.

2. BioCeuticals Ultra Muscleze Cream
Strenuous exercise can lead to a loss of magnesium, which can lead to aches and nasty cramping. The BioCeuticals Ultra Muscleze Cream contrains magnesium, wintergreen oil and menthol to help restore your magnesium levels to send you well on your way to recovery.
